Hi,

I'm Tom P., and I'm one of the tutors here. I've taught Psychology and Latin for 10 years, both in inner city and suburban high schools around Charlotte. I’ve taught all levels of Latin, from Latin 1 to AP Latin and have taught Intro and AP Psychology and Sociology. I've also taught Mythology. I've taught using Cambridge and Ecce Romani, and studied using Jenney, back when I was in high school.

My undergrad degree is in both Psychology and Classics. I've taken graduate courses in both Psychology and Latin, but economically was never able to finish the Master's.

I've been reading Latin for some 30 years now. I was taught by priests and learned how to read, write, think and speak Latin. I've got a pretty wide background in history, art, culture, religion, philosophy and sciences in the Classical world. I've also had quite a bit of Classical Greek and have read a varied number of authors in the originals.

In terms of Psychology, I did vocation rehabilitation with a very severe, psychiatrically disabled caseload for 10 years, in addition to the training I've mentioned above. During that time, I also did volunteer work and worked with a number of human services agencies, and have experience in most aspects of applied psychology. Not only do I know Psychology from the textbook and academic ends, but also from the applied and practical ends.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail, or reach me through WyzAnt.

Latin

I've been teaching Latin for 10 years; mostly inner city, but also some suburban public students, as well. I just started tutoring for WyzAnt. Having been taught by priests, I'm very proficient in Classical Latin and have tutored Classical Greek, as well. I have also taught mythology and have a background in comparative religions in the Classical World. I'm pretty academic, but have a strong background in teaching a variety of students and have a pretty differentiated repertoire of methods.

Great Tutor! — Tom has been a wonderful tutor for my grandson. He has an excellent teaching style that my grandson can understand. Tom has been instrumental in bringing his grade up from an F to a B. Tom is also very flexible with his schedule. He was very agreeable when I asked him to come everyday for several days before my grandson's final exam. He achieved a 91% on the exam. I will highly recommend him and ...
